This guide gives advice about completing a fire safety risk assessment for all employers, managers, occupiers and owners of premises where the main use of the building (or part of the building) is to provide residential care.
It is intended for non-domestic residential premises with staff in attendance at all times and where many, most or all of the residents would require carer assistance to be safe in the event of a fire (ie where residents would not be able to make their way to a place of safety unaided). These could include:
residential and nursing homes
rehabilitation premises providing residential treatment and care for addiction
